The classic jam "Motownphilly" by Boyz II Men was released on January 24, 1991 from the album Cooleyhighharmony.
The music video was filmed in various locations in Philladelphia, PA, the city where the group rose to stardom.
In the beginning of the song, you hear them shout out two new jack swing music groups, Another Bad Creation and Bell Biv DeVoe ABC BBD which are apart of the East coast family that Michael Bivins was also part of.
The song showed much commercial success and topped #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. At the end of 1991, the group made it to the number 11 spot on the Hot 100 Year End chart.
